The Biennale is for policy makers, researchers, users, practitioners, and other stakeholders involved in the development and implementation of Validation of Prior Learning. It`s about sharing knowledge, ideas and visions of VPL, learning from each other`s experiences and creating viable solutions in the ‘VPL world’.
